The Backwards Pianist is coming to Rexburg for a charity event to raise money for scholarships for the Upper Valley Music Teachers Association.
Jason Lyle Black is another popular pianist like Jon Schmidt, except he's known for playing the piano backwards.
In an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio, Black said he started playing the piano backwards when he was just 14.
"The very first time I did it was at an [Especially for Youth] talent show," Black said. "That kind of led into eventually becoming the Backwards Piano Man and doing that as part of my actual career as a performer."
Black is performing at the Rexburg Tabernacle on Feb. 25. The concert starts at 7 p.m. and the doors open at 6:30 p.m.
"It'll definitely be targeted to families with kids coming, but it'll also be fun for just couples or people who want to come on a date or with a friend," Black said. "It'll be a very fun and very variety-driven show."
